My mother passed away 24 years ago. Oftentimes I fund myself in need if parental guidance and love until I remember that I am a child of God .
When we recognize that we’ve made it this far because of God in our lives, we learn to trust God for ourselves. we learn to trust His decisions in our lives and we begin to follow Him. At least, we should learn to follow His path for us.
Following God is childlike. He’s our Heavenly Father and we are His children. In a parent-child relationship, little children are especially guarded because they lab abs depend on their patents for everything. The parent does everything to teach, defend and provide for their child. As an adult we often look back in our younger days and this relationship with fondness. It is this relationship that we are able to maintain with God .
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
1 John 4:4 KJV
